with andrea mitchell. >> did you mean to call barack obama the president of the united states lazy? >> yes. i think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas. he said, you know, they're making me do this work. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> do you want to respond to that? >> how do you respond to that. john sun nu has a pension for provocation. they can defend that insult, but last night the president again had a very clear adult conversation with the american people about the circumstances we're in today. mitt romney, like the true used car salesman he is, was all over the lot and spinning tales all over the place. people aren't going to buy that lemon. >> supporters of the president, some are not happy today. they feel for example aalone on the $716 billion that romney accused the president of taking out of medicare, the president did not refute that. let me play this moment. it has a lot of people concerned. >> on medicare, for current retirees, he's cutting $716 billion from the pr
, not only are they not doing that but it is getting incoherent. governor bob mcdonald was on andrea mitchell on this station today and when she raised the question of romney's tax plan, let me show you the encounter here. >> uh-huh. >> where is the math? and is mitt romney going to be under some pressure in the state to produce specifics as to how it will add up? >> well, andrea, first, it's a laughable question. >> i mean, did i miss something? what's laughable about that? >> that's a very reasonable question. i'm going to come up with an analogy which is for me the de ja vu of this election is 2004. okay? when john kerry couldn't describe his position was on the war of iraq, would he he have voted for it knowing what he knew at that time? how would he get out of it? it's one thing to deliver a critique of a sitting president with big challenges. even if you think that the sitting president is responsible for all of those challenges, as democrats thought about president bushes, they are now thinking about it with president obama. it's easy. when you say, i'm going to make it better, vote fo
and say what is it exactly that he said, and is it true? i know andrea mitchell did a good fact check on your air about this tax issue and how bogus his claim was that he's not supporting a $5 trillion tax cut that he can't pay for. so all of these issues are going to be discussed over the next 30 days. and i think the american people will sort it out. and they're going to make the right decision. >> you talked to the president after the debate last night. was he satisfied with his performance? >> well, like i've said before, the president's never satisfied with his performance. he's always challenging himself, and he will -- this, he'll review it, and if he wants to make some changes in the next debate, he'll do so. what he was satisfied with is that he went and he told the american people the truth. and i think he's fairly well convinced that governor romney didn't meet that standard. so, you know, that's going to be an issue in these coming 30 days. you know, you can't -- you can't tell the american people up is down and down is up and ignore your history and ignore your statements
